Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:064 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/


Package : cabextract Date : March 27, 2015 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Business Server 2.0


Problem Description:

Updated cabextract packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Libmspack, a library to provide compression and decompression of some file formats used by Microsoft, is embedded in cabextract. A specially crafted cab file can cause cabextract to hang forever. If cabextract is exposed to any remotely-controlled user input, this issue can cause a denial-of-service (CVE-2014-9556).

A directory traversal issue in cabextract allows writing to locations outside of the current working directory, when extracting a crafted cab file that encodes the filenames in a certain manner (CVE-2015-2060).
